Donald Theodore Hulbert
Birth: Apr. 29, 1899
San Bernardino County
California, USA
Death: Jan. 26, 1969
San Diego County
California, USA

Donald T. Hulbert was the youngest of six children of Ellis Hudson and Ida Louise [Rhea] Hulbert. His family and several aunts and uncles had moved to Redlands in the 1890's from Trumbull Co., Ohio. For several years, Donald's father worked as a "Zanjero", distributing water from the Zanja River, a major river and water source for Redlands, and owned his own orange ranch by 1900. The family lived on Citrus Av., where the high school is now situated. About 1910, the family moved to Los Angeles and when the Spanish Flu epidemic of 1918 hit, Donald T. was quarantined. During those long weeks, he corresponded by letter with his future wife, Vivian E. Schlappi whom he married in 1920. Not long after, Vivian's widowed mother moved in with them. Donald was a meat cutter and owned Hulbert's Market on the corner of 3rd Street and Western, which sustained his family during the depression years. His two daughters, Eldean and Gail, attended John Burroughs Jr. and Los Angeles High School. After they married and began families of their own, he retired from the grocery business and, in 1962, he and Vivian moved to an orange, lemon and avocado ranch 20 miles outside of Fallbrook, in San Diego County. His grandchildren loved everything about the place and spent countless weekends there. Donald was an avid baseball fan and listened to the games on the radio every year until his death. He never owned a television set. He was deeply loved by all his family.
